The cooler winter weather can leave your lawn looking a little pale, dull or off colour. Most common lawns in Australia like couch and buffalo slow down during the colder months and don’t begin to grow again until it starts to warm up again in spring. So now is the time to get cracking on your lawn, and Colin is going to show you how to get that professional deep green look in as little as three days’ time.
It’s not as hard as you think to have a great looking lawn and here in Australia, we all love our lawns, as it can be our own private green sanctuary for playing with the kids, kicking a footy, maybe playing a game of backyard cricket or just relaxing at a family barbeque. Regular maintenance is the key to a top-quality lawn. Mowing at least every 1-2 weeks during the main growing season from Spring to Autumn is the first step, followed by the application of a quality lawn fertiliser.
Many common lawn fertilisers need to be applied every few weeks to achieve good results, but Scotts Lawn Builder Extreme Green can be applied just three times per year in early spring, early summer and autumn for amazing results without any wastage or leaching of nutrients. Scotts Lawn Builder can be used on all types of lawn to encourage a stronger root system and to thicken the lawn without the surge growth of traditional lawn fertilisers making it more responsive to wear and tear.
To apply the fertiliser at the correct rate, it’s best to use a Scotts spreader and then just follow the settings on the bag, which is around a third of the amount normally applied when using conventional lawn fertilisers. Plus, it is safe for the kids and all the family pets!
Scotts patented timed-release nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and iron releases the nutrients just as your lawn needs them for up to 3 months, which means less mowing and a stronger lawn. With twice the amount of included Nitrogen compared to many of the other lawn brands, Lawn Builder is great value for money. And one 4kg bag covers up to 250 square metres or an average lawn three times.
To avoid fertiliser ending up in your garden beds or on the paving, the EvenGreen Drop Spreader is perfect to control exactly where the fertiliser is applied without any overthrow. Unlike other lawn fertilisers you don’t even need to water Scotts Lawn Builder in, as it is safe on your lawn until the next rain or watering.
So, if your lawn needs a quick pick me up to get over the winter blues, try Scotts Lawn Builder Extreme Green to quickly green up your lawn in just three days’ time for up to 3 months, and without the surge growth. Your neighbours are going to be green with envy! Scotts Lawn Builder Extreme Green is available at Bunnings stores throughout Australia, and you can find out more at lovethegarden.com.au.
